While our courses are not officially recognized by official institutions, the real question here is about Italian proficiency.
Our Flagship program, included with your Italy Made Easy Membership, is From Zero To Italian. This is the program for those who are serious about learning Italian to fluency. And yes, this program does align with the CEFR.
The main difference is that our Intermediate levels, which correspond to B1 and B2 are split into four separate levels. This allows you to go much more in-depth into the content to develop a far greater understanding of the concepts introduced than you would otherwise get with other courses following the traditional model.
Here is how our courses in From Zero To Italian align with the CEFR:
Beginner Italian Level 1 -> A1
Beginner Italian Level 2 -> A2
Intermediate Italian Level 1 } B1
Intermediate Italian Level 2 } B1
Intermediate Italian Level 3 } B2
Intermediate Italian Level 4 } B2
Advanced Italian Level 1 -> C1
Advanced Italian Level 2 -> C2
The important thing for you to know is that our programs are the best at preparing you for any official assessment of your Italian knowedlge.
At each level, your knowledge and understanding of the Italian language will be much deeper than those who try other courses and programs.
So, if you do have an upcoming Italian exam at some point in the future, not only will we help you pass it, but by learning with Italy Made Easy, you will smash it!
